Not sure what point you're making here? If what I'm inferring is correct (that you're saying cockpit assassins can and will have wildly varying times), I couldn't disagree more.
More on point, Horst was within six seconds of a famous Porsche cockpit assassin, so unless our so-far mythical M3 pilot actually descended from the cross to try his luck, it would be reasonable to assume roughly similar differences. One could even make a case that the M3 difference might be a bit smaller than in the 997S, because the Porsche is definitely a bastard at the limit, and as far as I'm aware, the M3 isn't.
